[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A crocus photo was taken in Yalova province near Delmece plateu, on touristic green-blue way. A few year ago Yalova Governorship has recognized and prepared a touristic way project: The blue-green way. This is a great project, which if you go on this way you will see lots of villages, plateus, lakes, waterfalls and beachs. Sometimes you see the Marmara See on the left side and a rich forest on the other side. You will discover new and edemic plants, wildy animals (bear, fox etc.) and many specieses of birds. You can camp and picnic in the special places that was prepared by Yalova Governorship, near a lake. And you can see after 1-2 kilometers trecking a nicely waterfall on a clean drinkable watered stream. And I think fresh air is important too.

There is a link here and here but unfortunately in Turkish. I tried but could not find any info about this project in English. I don't have enough time to translate it.

You see here a crocus but I don't know it's species. If someone will help me I'll be very happy and thankful to him (or her) :)

Hallo Fevzi
Amazing bright lavender colour of these crocuses. I like the contrast to the blurry gravel background! Good focus and excellent textures in the petals, fine details in this close-up. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day.
Kind regards
